A Few New LGBTQ Resources

A couple newer resources available for (and about) LGBTQ patients:

  1. CDC has some infographics about sexual minority youth and violence–in schools, in relationships, etc. Trans- youth aren’t specified in this data, so be mindful of that omission, but if you’re considering some targeted programming, or you want to make it clear that your services are inclusive by adding this material to your waiting area, these are a good addition to your resource library.
  2. Futures Without Violence published some safety cards for LGBTQ IPV materials: a poster; safety cards (in English and Spanish); and a trans-/gender non-conforming safety card (in English and Spanish). They’re free downloads or you can order hard copies (also free) from their store. The dedicated web page also has some tips and other resources.
